Like the look of Access and GFS for about the 15th/16th May. Cold air could well push up to the CT's around that time. smile Worth watching. smile

Indeed. Ta for the heads up DB! The usual downgrades notwithstanding, we look to be heading into a much more wintry type pattern than just a week or so ago. Mind you, the models haven't really downgraded this juicy low due over the weekend and into early next week, so predictability may be on the improve.
cool

Has everyone noticed the high pressure systems are way north this year where they are supposed to be. This could be a big winter for the southern states if this continues. Not too sure what this has as a reflection of going to nina or if this will continue. In a normal winter the highs are supposed to be at the Brisbane latitude's, which they are at the moment. Keep it up.

Very noticeable PC. Quite a rapid shift into the central latitudes. The recent transition down here to the more typical wintry set up has been quite marked. smile

Agreed! Don't want those highs slipping too far south of Brisbane's latitude now and robbing Melbourne of its winter storms now do we! Lol wink

My fiancee who lives in Fiji is as thrilled as I am to see snow blanketing the High Country via social media, including Mount Hotham, Falls Creek, Thredbo, and Charlotte Pass! Assuming her visa is processed in time, and the winter storms continue to roll into Southern Australia from Antarctica (and the La Nina predicted for the Pacific in coming months takes shape and can offer a helping hand), she and I will definitely hit the Australian Alps, most likely in July/August! smile

Personally I'd love to take her to the Selwyn Snowfields near Cabramurra, but that's dependent on whether we make it to Corryong, Northeast Victoria, and even then there's no guarantees we'll make it there. I can't take my car to the snow, and my parents may not take the only car that has snow chains. poke

As a back-up plan, I've set my sights on the ski resorts closer to Melbourne, mainly Lake Mountain near Marysville, and Mount Buller, as well as to a lesser extent Mount Baw Baw.

But can anyone offer me any information about any snow tours (whether day tours or for a couple of nights, etc) that operate from Albury/Wodonga, servicing the Mount Buffalo, Mount Hotham, Dinner Plain and Falls Creek? I found just one (shown below), but further info would be much appreciated, cheers!

Also, any information on ski tours that operate to the NSW Snowy Mountains from Canberra? Vinaka! smile

Awfully quiet in this thread at present!
Looks like the first decent front of the year and a possible ski season kick starter next Friday into the weekend. It's a fair way out but some encouragement is in the models.
Hopefully we can get some discussion going as the models ebb and flow and hopefully start to align.

AccessR has 850hPa temps flirting with a brief dip into sub-zero territory later today over the far south coast of WA. Not quite in the zone for a Bluff Knoll snow dusting, but not bad numbers for for this time of year.

Hmmm I don't have my Forester any more, only a 2 (sometimes 1) wheel drive!!

Can't see enough snow to give me any issues though. Might go for a drive too if it looks intereting enough. Car's too clean, may as well dirty it up a bit grin
